We hear so many people asking the question “Is home ownership still part of the American Dream?” You bet it is! A recent survey by the National Association of Realtors shows a a large number of home owners and renters agree that owning a home is a great long term decision.
In fact the study conducted by Harris Interactive for the Realtors shows 95 percent of owners and 72 percent of renters believe that over a period of several years, it makes more sense to own a home. Think about it, owning your own home contributes to the overall quality of family life. It is the American Dream.
Ok, you’re probably saying, “look at what’s happening in the marketplace”, we have so many homes in foreclosure etc. etc. The truth is the market is making inroads, there are deals to be had. Today’s homebuyer needs to be pre-qualified and work with a realtor in good standing in your community. Realtors are there to help you find the home of your dreams.
Back to the survey, 93 percent of current home owners are happy with their decision to own and they say they would buy again. In Northern Indiana from Fort Wayne, to the rural area’s and the wonderful lakes region (which we have hundreds) there is a place for you to call home.
